April 17, 2018 (JUBA) - South Sudan peace revitalization talks have been postponed sine die, announced the Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission (JMEC) in a short statement released on Tuesday.

The opening session of the revitalization forum in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, December 18, 2017 (ST)

Last March, the IGAD Council of Ministers agreed to resume Phase II of the High-Level Revitalization Forum (HLRF) on 26 April. It was also decided that the Special Envoy had to hold consultations meetings with the process’s parties and stakeholder to narrow the gaps on governance and security arrangements.

In a meeting held in Juba on Tuesday, IGAD Special Envoy to South Sudan, Ismail Wais informed the JMEC of the postponement of the peace revitalization forum.

"The new dates will be communicated by the Office of the Chairperson of the IGAD Council of Ministers in due course," said the statement without further details.

For its part, the IGAD did not release a statement to announce the indefinite postponement.

Until Tuesday 17 April, nine days before the resumption of the forum, the IGAD special envoy met only with the civil society stakeholders to the HLRF. No other meeting was announced with the government or the opposition groups.

Further, several opposition parties formed the South Sudan Opposition Alliance (SSOA) requested be consulted as one entity and blamed the mediation for ignoring their position paper in its last draft of propositions.

In reaction, Juba government threatened to hold general elections if no deal reached. While, the leader of the main armed opposition group, Riek Machar, wants to be authorized to take part in the forum and to be the region after the end of his confinement.

Different between the parties remain huge on the issue of governance especially composition and structure of the transitional government; number and size of states and composition of the Parliament.

On the security arrangements, the participants to the forum diverge on the timeframe for reintegration/unification of forces and approach to the formation of one national army; security for Juba during the Transition; demilitarization of civilian centres; cantonment of forces and Security sector reform or establishment of new security services.

        We have many people like you in Equatoria who think they are smart, but they are not. Peace will come this year, IGAD is doing great work and we need to respect them. We have seen what the war did to rebels in South Sudan. I will see you soon in Juba with big smile in your face.

          South South,
          You often contradict yourself. Once you write about the opposition being defeated, once you write about peace coming soon. You are a loser. If indeed the opposition were defeated all UN PoCs would be closed and all Nuers in Juba, Bor as well as jienges in Bentiu would all return to their luaks. Jienge losers are still squatting in Nimule, Juba etc why? They are scared stiff.

            If you assert that the Kiirminal and nus-jellaba Taban have a good working relationship, then there is peace. Go ahead alone, you don’t need the rest. Run your jienge republic the way you want it. For us, we are going to develop a new Equatoria State devoid of jienges and nyagats. Both are just congenitally abnormal and "unfit" for civilised societies. HLRF must be disbanded.

There are no Dinkas in PoCs. We have Nuer and Shulluk in PoCS for political purpose. You are nothing, but a piece of dirt. We can do anything we want with you, shut up.

Those Equatorians that have surrendered b4 our ultimate objective can go and kiss 💋 jienge shitholes and be contented. Accepting peace now is like Jesus sitting down with satan for a worthless deal.

                      The bullish attitudes of you and cohorts cannot be left unpunished. South Sudan will certainly rise out of the ashes but after big shots have been executed and buried in unmarked graves. Even now, the world is wondering where Saddam Hussein has been interred.

                  Thanks for the links. Honorable Beda was asked and he simply pointed nothing but truth from his life experiences. Let not go beyond that. South Sudan problem is lack of a leader. John Garang is able to unite us and liberate South Sudan not because he is Dinka but because he was logical sound leader.

I think the IGAD leaders are going to come out with strong statement about imposing punishment on SPLA IO special, Dr. Riek Machar.

    IGAD is the root cause of the war in South Sudan. The economies of the member states of IGAD are booming at the expense of the economy of South Sudan. That is why IGAD will drag its feet on the revitalisation forum and support the continuity of the status quo - an Orwellian animal farm in South Sudan. No money, no salaries, no food and a drunken president without a vision for the country.

    Charles Majok, South Sudan with President Kiir as its president is much more better than the lawless chaotic weak South Sudan the rebels are selling on silver plate to a combined greedy herd of Ethiopian/Sudanese politicians to rape and loot. The solution to Kiir’s ineptitude is simple: Democratic elections. But foreigners can loot South Sudan till Jesus come back if SPLA-IO don’t think twice!
